LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Jefferson County Coroner's Office has identified two people who died in a triple shooting in the Parkland neighborhood Tuesday night.
According to authorities, 36-year-old Lashay Dorsey and 47-year-old Andre Mosley were killed. Dorsey's time of death is listed as 10:20 p.m. Tuesday night. We're told Mosley was pronounced dead at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday. Both died at University Hospital of gunshot wounds.
A third victim remains hospitalized.
"She had a very warm heart," community activist Christopher 2X said of Dorsey.
LMPD responded to 26th Street and Kentucky Street just after 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. Initially, detectives said that four people had been shot; however, one woman thought she'd been shot, but instead received a different injury.
Investigators say the shooting happened outside the home at a 60th birthday party. All the shooting victims were in their 30s or 40s. Investigators say they're working to figure out if this was a drive-by shooting, or if someone walked up to the party. We spoke with pastor Charles Elliott, who knew one of the victims.
"The young man that I do know, he'd come out to church sometimes, looked like he was doing OK," Elliott said. "We're living in some very difficult times."
"I just don't know how a person could sleep at night knowing that they did that," said Tamara Stott, who was at the party during the shooting.
LMPD closed down several downtown streets to rush victims to University Hospital. Several ambulances arrived there just after 10 p.m.
Investigators have been trying to locate witnesses.
"The shooting took place in front of a birthday party, which there were a large number of people that were outside in the front yard in close proximity to where the shooting took place," said Lt. Todd Kessinger. "However, they didn't see anything that was helpful to us at this point."
No arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD tip line at 574-LMPD. Callers can remain anonymous.
